Christmas in Surfers Paradise is truly the most wonderful time of the year. This year, Surfers Paradise beach and mall will be transformed to an Aussie summertime wonderland. Santa will be there dressed for the occasion in board shorts; carollers will be singing; and there might even be a chance to win a prize (but only if you’ve been good)! Here are 4 events not to be missed:
